Sal’s National Basketball League (women)

August 12 - September 11

Following the enormous success of last year’s 18in18 competition, the Sal’s NBL women’s competition will take things up a notch when they step back on court this August.

Featuring the Otago Gold Rush, Canterbury Wildcats, Capital Swish, Waikato Wizards, Auckland Dream and 2020 champions Harbour Breeze, the 2021 season will see each team play one another twice ahead of a Final 4.

The season will include 33 games and will again be held at one venue, this time spanning five weeks from August 12 to September 11.

Last year’s venue, Pulman Arena in South Auckland, is amongst the venues being considered for the 2021 season.

“The 18in18 competition last November was an incredible success for us, and it came at a really tough time for our players, teams and fans as we all battled to get back on court after two interruptions due to Covid,” said League General Manager, Justin Nelson.

“This year we will take the competition up a level with more games, more broadcasts and hopefully the chance to see the return of some international players as well.

“The rising numbers of Kiwi women playing globally is further evidence of the game’s growth here in New Zealand and the Sal’s NBL plays a huge part in providing elite pathways for our players,” added Nelson.

The season tips-off with the Dream playing the Wizards on August 12. The League will announce the venue in due course.
